Fire in student accommodation

Nelson Street, Bristol

Crews from Temple, Southmead, Bedminster & HicksGate fire stations were called to a kitchen fire in student accommodation. 

On arrival, two firefighters in breathing apparatus extinguished the fire using one CO2 extinguisher.

They then used a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear smoke from the property.

All students were evacuated but allowed to return to the building shortly after. 

The cause is thought to be accidental.
